Hi I'm working on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I already installed ROS kinetic, however, I couldn't find installation for turtlebot on kinetic, only indigo is supported. Can I find a supported installation for kinetic? Also, can I install indigo along with kinetic without collision?

Edit: I was able to install gazebo simulator for turtlebot after long hours, however, every time I try to launch turtlebot_world.launch I get error message as shown in the attached screenshot.image description Thank youimage description

Indigo is not supported on 16.04 Xenial.

Please see the supported platforms in REP 3

Indigo can be installed from source side by side with Kinetic on Xennial if you're willing to do a little debugging. Most dependencies have not changed miuch so it generally will work.

Most TurtleBot packages are released and available on Kinetic: http://repositories.ros.org/status_pa...

many of them written (branch:indigo) next to the source, should they work with kinetic? Also, I don't know how to install these packages after cloning them from github, can you help with that please? Thanks

Directions for installing from source are here: http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installati...

You should also read up on the ROS tutorials related to maintaining workspaces: http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials
